In a new interview with Consequence, Wolfgang Van Halen was asked about David lee Roth’s retirement.
Here’s what he said (via Blabbermouth):
“Dave is a… he’s very much a one-of-a-kind [chuckles] sort of guy. We don’t really talk, if ever. We were always cordial on tour together, but it’s not like I’ve spoken to him at all in the last six years. But, I mean, he’s f*cking David Lee Roth. I’m so happy for him and for everything that he’s accomplished. And he’s just a phenomenal… He’ll always be one of the best.”
Last month, Diamond Dave had announced his retirement plan, saying:
“I am throwing in the shoes. I’m retiring,” Roth told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “These are my last five shows.”
